Installing a Dry-X Waterproofing System is your first step to ending your humidity, odors, and poor indoor air problems. The Dry-X system offers protection against odors and poor indoor air quality.
Basement Indoor Air Quality
Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home.
High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants. Basement areas are a source of high humidity and poor unhealthy air for your home. The stagnant, damp-like odors and musty smell are evidence of poor indoor air quality.
Damp basements promote biological growth, including molds, they are not healthy places to live in. Thus, any moisture problems should be corrected before you proceed. Correcting moisture problems may be as simple as redirecting downspout runoff away from the foundation. It may involve re-grading the ground around the house so that it slopes down away from foundation, or venting the dryer to the outside (something that should be done in all homes). In any event, the problems should be addressed before you begin other work.
Crawl Space Indoor Air Quality
Crawl space areas are a source of high humidity and poor unhealthy air for your home. The stagnant, damp-like odors and musty smell are evidence of poor indoor air quality. By completely sealing your crawl space and directing all ground gases and other pollutants away from your breathable air, the Dry-X System will greatly improve the air quality throughout your home.
Dry-X provides a cost-effective, permanent solution to allergens and irritants by eliminating the source of the problem while creating a clean, dry, sanitary storage area and protecting the value of your home.
